As a followup to our story below, Universal Orlando Resort has this morning issued a press release regarding the launch of a national advertising campaign for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park during the first half of the upcoming Super Bowl XLIV football game.  Additionally, Universal has released the first official high res screen grab from the national advertisement.  The press release reads:

Universal Orlando Resort will launch a brand-new, national commercial for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter during Super Bowl XLIV. The ad, created by Universal Orlando and Rosso Media Ltd in the UK, offers guests a look into the magic that awaits them at the highly anticipated theme park experience set to open Spring 2010.
Set to air during the first half of the Super Bowl, the ad features all-new footage and pulls viewers directly into the new area – from the bustling village of Hogsmeade, to the immensity of Hogwarts castle. The commercial also features Harry Potter and two children who get a glimpse at the excitement guests can expect to experience when they visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
The commercial also begins a new brand campaign, “Be Courageous. Be Outrageous. Be Extraordinary.” showing viewers that Universal Orlando Resort is the only theme park destination in the world where you can soar above Hogwarts castle with Harry Potter, swing above the streets with Spider-Man and help Shrek save Princess Fiona in Shrek 4-D.
Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will provide visitors with a one-of-a- kind experience complete with multiple themed attractions, shops and a restaurant. 
Super Bowl XLIV will air Sunday, February 7, 2010 on CBS.

Yeah, I can sometimes be heard to refer to the game as The Stupid Bowl [sorry, just not a fan of football], so I will most likely catch the clip[s] on YouTube the next day. “Be courageous!” — by going to a theme park? Hmmm. But FUN, yeah!

They are going to torture us up until opening day aren’t they?
Patience is not one of my virtues. It is going to be outstanding, no doubt about it.

I like the look of the screen grab! It is further torture, but I’m glad to see it anyway.
